Tami Hughes Artist
My name is Tami and I have been an artist for many years. Over the last few years, I started teaching art to children from age 9 and up.
I love art and since I don't have children of my own I want to share what I have learned with the next generation. I break everything down so anyone can draw or paint. I also do group sip & paint gatherings at my place or yours. All supplies included.
This is my passion and enjoys everything there is on art.
I enjoy watching as my students start to see things come together in understanding how it's done. THEN see how proud they are of their finished piece. This is the reason I have an art studio in Tucker to provide my skills to the public and homeschoolers. My online classes are credited for homeschoolers.

I introduce the materials we will be using and to use them. Next, we would work on some practice samples of how to use the tools and make sure they understand this process. Once we cover the basics then we would proceed onto the project.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a Assoc. Degree in art. Where I learn the basic of the arts to doing what I do today. A few years ago I went back to college to get my BA by taking Anime class and more art class in drawing and painting.
Today I am a computer graphic designer and a teacher at a small local art school in my area.
